I'm not normal - I've never been drunk, have never taken drugs, and I have very little interest in football. I'm not keen on crowds of people (unless it involves a sailing club) and I prefer to be in quiet, wild places where nature is in charge. Dating sites aren't my thing, but I've made an exception for this one as there might, just might, be someone special here. What matters most is compatibility of ambitions (because I'm only looking for a life-long partner), so we can probably rule each other out very easily just by exploring that. For example, if you're dog or cat obsessed and your life revolves around that, look elsewhere
My biggest ambition is to have children and provide them with a Swallows-and-Amazons childhood, so if we're not on the same page with that, there's nothing to discuss. So, adventure, wildlife, sailing dinghies, hills, islands - if you aren't keen on these things, it simply won't work. Age isn't important, but ideally you come from a family of long-lived people like mine who stay young and fit into old age (and who typically look a couple of decades younger than their chronological age). Why the picture of me as a child? Well, I may become very well known in the near future through my work in artificial intelligence - I don't want to be a celebrity, so I've made sure there are no photos of me anywhere online other than as a child.
